The Secret Ingredient That Can Really Kick Start Your Results
Researchers on the Caribbean island of Cuba have been quietly studying a strain of the exotic sugar cane plant that’s an exciting cholesterol breakthrough. It’s called Policosanol — and it’s an extremely helpful nutrient for total circulatory and heart support. In fact, I’ve seen it work in my own family members. Policosanol helps you limit your cholesterol worries in three different ways:
Policosanol flushes out more oxidized LDL cholesterol
As we’ve seen, when your levels of LDL cholesterol are too high, free radicals oxidize them… which can cause a lot of health problems for you.
Most of the cholesterol in your body does not come from your diet; it’s produced by your liver. Policosanol causes your liver to metabolize — or burn up — the extra LDL cholesterol helping keep your arteries healthy. So it helps to keep the nearly 100,000 miles of arteries and veins in your body healthy, significantly boosting your circulatory health.
In one large-scale study, just 5 mg. of policosanol twice a day lowered bad LDL numbers by an astounding 22 percent. Other studies have shown decreases as much as 27 percent.
But the good news doesn’t stop there. Policosanol helps limit your body’s ability to make more LDL. It is also a natural blood thinner and promotes healthier circulation.
However, keeping LDL levels low and limiting oxidized cholesterol is just part of the story. But here’s another way this superstar nutrient helps you take control of your cholesterol fast…
Policosanol can help your body make more good HDL cholesterol
Research shows that the higher your HDL cholesterol levels, the better. And while many natural formulas do a good job of lowering LDL, few have the ability to raise HDL levels substantially. But policosanol does. In one study, patients taking just 5 mg of policosanol twice a day saw their HDL levels increase an average of 13.6 percent!
Since policosanol can get your HDL and LDL levels into a healthy ratio, it can lower your total cholesterol, too. In more than a dozen trials, participants lowered total cholesterol by an impressive 16 percent.
